Crown of Barbarossa - animation
I decided to do a little animation of the crown to show it from different angles.
I liked to experiment with 60 fps and 4k resolution, but sadly whereever I uploaded it so far the movement kept slightly stuttering and the image quality was less crisp than what I produced.
Playing with the Depth of Field settings was a struggle. Neither Hitfilm Express nor Adobe After Effects were able to deliver the correct blurring so I ended up editing every single frame in Photoshop which thanks to the recorded action feature was doable within few seconds each fortunately.
I should look into plugins in the future.
As for the music used in the clip, I was able to find a nice, fitting song "Heavy Interlude" by Kevin MacLeod who graciously put it out to use for free 👍
